With straw bale walls and run completely on solar power, 1452 Foundry was built from the ground up using state of the art sustainability practices. Set among the pines with plenty of acreage, 1452 Foundry is the epitome of peace and tranquility and lends itself perfectly to an ideal creative environment.

The studio itself, boasting a 16’ timber framed live room, spacious control room and  2 isolation rooms along with plenty of available equipment guarantees efficiency and affordability without sacrificing quality.

At the helm of the studio, Dorian has been an engineer for 20 years, recording and mixing for nationally acclaimed acts. Using an organic approach to production, he believes in making the artist as comfortable as possible. This leads to a more natural performance and results in a better product. Dorian  also employs a combination of digital and analog approaches. Using an analog input stage yields a superior more classic sound while using a digital post production system provides for more flexibility and losslessness, and allows for more speed in the post production process.
